Hidden down a little street, it was bustling with locals and tourists. Good wine and good food with excellent service! Would recommend if you want to experience a true venetian restaurant and stay away from a tourist trap.

We found this nice small restaurant with wonderful service close to the Grand Canal but away from the tourist hot spots and thus away from the usual traps with expensive food and bad service. The starter, main course and desert were all good and really italian. A recommendation for those who seek authenticity.
The small courtyard terrace looked very nice - we didn't get a place there though.

We always eat here on our trips to Venice. The things they do with pumpkins in the winter is magical! And the meat main courses are always tasty and imaginative. The menu is small, but fresh, and changes every week . Theres no web site, so make sure to reserve a table by phone or you might be disappointed. Wonderful.

My wife is allergic to seafood which presents something of a conundrum in Venice, which is famous for seafood. We were staying in the nearby Palazzo Stern and decided to give it a try. Note that this restaurant has defined seatings at 7:00 and 9:00 PM. This is unusual for Italy, less so for Venice, however. We were lucky that there was a table open at the 7:00 PM seating and were able to get a table without a reservation. Our waitress was very knowledgeable concerning wine and she chose a bottle for us that turned out to be a good choice. I had the duck and a vegetarian pasta dish to start: both were great. We had an interesting spice cake for dessert. It was almost “peppery” in flavor and was quite interesting. I definitely recommend it.

This place is fantastic-- tucked away in a little side street in Dorsoduro, it is a true meat-lover's dream. It's away from the tourist crowd and is tiny enough for a nice, intimate dinner, but still large enough to support parties of 6-8. It was one of my favorite meals I have had in Venice. Food is fresh and inviting without being too heavy. The owner of the restaurant was helpful in describing the dishes and our options-- hats off to her!
